CASA Math Practice Test

The CASA—Math test is one of three subtests in an assessment of academic skills designed to lead qualified teaching candidates to educator licensure in the State of Indiana. The content of the CASA subtests was created to measure teaching candidates’ adherence to and knowledge of Indiana’s stringent Rules for Educator Preparation and Accountability (REPA) Educator Standards. The CASA—Math test in particular covers several key objectives and standards outlined by the State of Indiana to ensure Indiana’s students receive a rigorous, high-quality mathematics education from the most qualified teaching candidates.

What are the eligibility requirements to take the CASA—Math test?

Candidates may take the CASA—Math test on its own, or at the same time as the other CASA subtests. To take the CASA—Math test, you must meet the educator credentialing standards set forth by the Indiana Department of Education. Elementary teachers (grades K-6) must earn a bachelor’s degree in mathematics with an education minor, or a bachelor’s degree in education with a minor in mathematics. Secondary teachers (grades 5-12) must earn a bachelor’s degree in a mathematics major with a minor in education.

What fees are associated with the CASA—Math test?

The CASA—Math test costs $38 on its own (i.e., each CASA subtest costs $38 individually). You can pay your test fee using a debit or credit card while registering online. If you need to pay by check, contact Evaluation Systems via the Indiana CORE website to arrange payment.  Please note that testing centers may charge additional fees, which are usually paid directly to the testing center.

What is the passing score for the CASA—Math test?

You must receive a score of at least 220 on the CASA—Math subtest. Teaching candidates in the State of Indiana must pass all three subtests in order to qualify for educator licensure. You will receive your preliminary passing score immediately after taking your test. If you take the CASA—Math test individually, your official score report will be available within 10 business days of your test date. If you take the CASA—Math test at the same time as the remaining CASA subtests, your official score report will be available within 20 business days of your test date.

What does the CASA—Math test cover?
